Here you’ll find both a weekly and monthly leaderboard with associated prizes awarded to those who qualify by finishing the week or month at the top of the respective leaderboard:

The weekly leaderboard starts on Sundays at 12am EST and runs through the following Saturday, concluding at 11:59pm EST. Weekly leaderboard prizes are awarded on Sundays at 12:15am EST.

The monthly leaderboard starts on the 1st of the month at 12am EST and runs through the last day of the calendar month, concluding at 11:59pm EST. Monthly leaderboard prizes are awarded on the 1st of the following month at 12:15am EST.

In the next section you’ll find the details behind our leaderboard formula along with a few examples. Give it a read and let us know what you think in the comments below! Where do you stand on the leaderboard?

Leaderboard Formula

If you rank in a tourney you’ll receive points towards the leaderboard standings (called leaderboard points, or LBP), based on the number of entrants, the tournament buy-in, your place of finish, and the type of prize awarded (virtual currency, invitation to another tourney, or a tangible prize like cash or a live event buy-in). If you finish in a place that does not awards a prize in the tourney, lose your chips before late registration expires, or forfeit for inactivity, you will not have a rank and will not be calculated into the leaderboard standings.

The formula used to determine the total leaderboard points (LBP) awarded to a player for any given tournament is:

Points = 10 * (sqrt(n)/sqrt(f)) * (1+(log(b+0.25))*p)

Where:

n is the number of entrants
f is the place of finish (f=1 for the first-place finisher, and so on)
b is the buy-in amount in Tokens (or Loyalty Points). For freerolls the buy-in is 0. Discounted invitations should use the maximum value discounted on the buy-in.

p is the prize type (1 = Invitation; 2 = Tokens; 5 = Cash/External)

Examples:

Example 1:

A player takes first place in a $1000 tournament with a field of 200 players and a 2000 Token buy-in. Here:

n = 200, f=1, b=2000, p=5

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(f)] * [1+(log(b+0.25)) * p]

= 10 * [sqrt(200)/sqrt(1)] * [1+(log(2000+0.25)) * 5]
= 2476 LBP

Example 2:

A player takes first place in a freeroll cash tourney with a field of 1200 players. Here:

n = 1200, f=1, b=0, p=5

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(f)] * [1+(log(b+0.25)) * 5]
= 10 * [sqrt(1200)/sqrt(1)] * [1+(log(0+0.25)) * 5]
= 696 LBP

Example 3:

A player takes first place in a Token tournament with a field of 10 players and a 55 Token buy-in. Here:

n = 10, f=1, b = 55, p = 2

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(f)] * [1+(log(b+0.25)) * p]
= 10 * [sqrt(10)/sqrt(1)] * [1+(log(55+0.25)) * 2]
= 142 LBP

Example 4:

A player takes first place in a Level SNG tournament with a free buy-in, a field of 6 players and a prize of Tokens + Invitation. Here:

n = 6, f=1, b = 0, p = 3

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(f)] * [1+(log(b+0.25)) * p]
= 10 * [sqrt(6)/sqrt(1)] * [1+(log(0+0.25)) * 3]
= 20 LBP

Example 5:

A player takes first place in a Level SNG tournament with a 200 Token buy-in, a field of 6 players and a prize of Tokens + Invitation. Here:

n = 6, f=1, b = 200, p = 3

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(f)] * [1+(log(b+0.25)) * p]
= 10 * [sqrt(6)/sqrt(1)] * [1+(log(200+0.25)) * 3]
= 194 LBP

Example 6:

A player takes first place in a SNG tournament with a 40 Token buy-in, a field of 10 players and a cash prize. Here:

n = 10, f=1, b = 40, p = 5

The total points awarded to this player are:

= 10 * [sqrt(n)/sqrt(f)] * [1+(log(b+0.25)) * p]
= 10 * [sqrt(10)/sqrt(1)] * [1+log(40+0.25)) * 5]
= 285 LBP
